Thread: Sandy Koufax

  1. #11
    I will say this:

    Years ago, probably in like 2005, my cousin (who was then a college pitcher) needed to get tommy john surgery. He was distraught and unsure of whether to continue his pitching career. Growing up his idol was Sandy Koufax. He wrote him a long letter saying what a fan he was, describing the situation he was in and asking for advice.

    A week later he got a phone call at his house from Sandy Koufax. I'm not sure he ever got an autograph out of it, but I know he was amazed and grateful and will remember it for the rest of his life.

    That's incredible. Did he keep pitching?

    Unfortunately he was in the minority of patients whose tommy john surgery fails, and rather than get another surgery and rehab again he elected to hang up the cleats.

    It's a shame too because he was a 6'4" lefty that could throw 90+...

    I think your comment is a bit harsh. I'm actually one of those horrible human beings that have been lucky to get Koufax TTM. I've sent to him only one time to an addy I found on the internet. The reason I didn't share the addy...HE asked me not to! I think his privacy is worth considering.

    I am very greatful for this website and others like it. I benefit from it and I try to help/add to it as well. There may be people out there that are greedy and only trying to help themselves, but not everyone is. This site is full of good and helpful people. Anybody that has PM me about the Koufax address I've tried to help as best as I feel I can. Please watch who you are calling out...there may be other reasons to consider.

    Well obviously my statement was made not knowing the circumstances, but I wouldn't be surprised if others on here are hoarding addresses for the reasons I gave, and that is meant to call THEM out. Because of your reason (which I respect) my callout was not directed at you by intent, even if it was worded as such.

    That being said I would appreciate any help you can give me, as he's one of my all-time faves, especially after as I said he treated my cousin very well.

    Over the years I have tried 3 different addresses for Sandy Koufax with all but one being an RTS (the other is a no response!). The addys that I tried are the ones already listed in this thread, including the Dodgers. The funny part is that I met this guy at ST this year at the St. Louis Cardinals area in Jupiter and he had 3 signed ROMLBs by Koufax that he got that morning. He got them all IP at the Mets ballpark in St. Lucie when Koufax came by. And yes, he said he signed all three while he stood there. Dude, at this point, I would say it's the luck of the draw and just be happy if you can snag one some day...
